Attachment for replacing the wheels on the motoblock
Do it yourself
Now let’s talk about how to make the wheels to the tiller yourself. We should clarify at once that the creation of pneumatic and cast wheels at home is impossible in principle.
And why reinvent the wheel, if you can equip garden equipment with tires from a car or motorcycle. You only need to install a suitable hub and you can start work.
It is quite another matter, if we are talking about cleats. You really can make these self-made wheels for a single axle tractor yourself. Here’s an elementary assembly diagram:
- We take the old rims from the car. Note that only the rim is needed. The wheel diameter depends on the power of the tractor, considering that the design will be all-metal, the weight will be considerable.
- Weld metal plates to disks. The edges of the plates must touch the edge of the rim. This is an important element of the design, so the plates are welded on the entire outer radius, you can fix them with bolts to improve reliability.
- We weld the tines to the metal plate. They can be made from a corner, having previously cut it into pieces of the required length. Please note that the distance between the teeth should not exceed 15-20 centimeters. Otherwise the efficiency of such wheels will be reduced to zero.
- We weld in the disk of half-axles, complete the construction with bearings and mount the running gear on a single-axle tractor.
It is possible to make groundhooks from an old gas cylinder. In this case, you need to cut two rims, about 6-7 centimeters wide, and then proceed according to the above scheme.
In general, the skids can be constructed from any material at hand, which has the shape of a circle. The main thing is to show a desire and apply a little skill.
To make a motoblock, it is best to use the engine from an old moped or motorcycle, in addition to this basic element, you will need a number of different materials:
- steel pipe at least 20 mm in diameter. It is better to use for the supporting frame as solid a base as possible, which can be processed manually;
- Sheet iron to form parts of the hull and plating;
- A thick steel bar for the supporting axle;
- rotation axis bearing;
- transmission elements for the suspension;
- tillage system;
- Wheels, steel rims or chamber tires with deep tread.
The list, of course, is far from complete, all elements for creating a mobile unit can be selected only after designing the structure.
Do not forget about the appropriate material for the assembly of a motor block
Usually with self-assembly technique in the foreground stands the factor of resource saving, and therefore in the motor blocks are used those parts that remained from the worthless machines and motorcycles, and after a small modification will still be able to serve the owner. An additional source of parts base can act as a garage of neighbors on the plot or car disassembly. There is also an option to use the help of numerous blogs, communities on repairing equipment with their own hands, common on the network.
Also from the master himself will be required at least a basic knowledge of the structure of the internal combustion engine, gearbox, gear reducer and the basics of metalworking. If you feel there is a gap in knowledge, it can be filled with the help of special literature or internet resources. Taking on such a complicated job without any experience at all is rash.
Important! The motor is the mainstay of the implement and must be checked to ensure that it functions properly.
Zhigul wheels on a single-axle tractor: selection, installation and possible malfunctions
Motor blocks. a very important and useful device in the personal economy. But sometimes their branded equipment does not satisfy farmers, gardeners. Then the question naturally arises of replacing. The topic of this article. how to install Zhigul wheels on a single-axle tractor.
Tires are a modified group of wheels that do not have tires and tubes.
The main purpose. to work in the fields (the key value is the performance of traction with the ground).
They refer to steel discs with special external inserts, which provide significant assistance when driving.
Kum 680 wheels for tillage
A distinctive feature is the presence of:
The size of the wheels of the power block Neva of this modification:
They are installed on the gearbox shaft. there are no additional connections.
We plant potatoes with a motoblock. New fertilizer dispenser.
Kum 540 universal wheels for tillage
The difference from the 680 model is not a solid rim, but the presence of only the side. inside it is full. In addition, the spikes are not slanted to one side, but have a V-shaped design.
When driving into the ground, the traction is not only by the spikes, but also by the rim itself, due to which the maximum effect is achieved.
Important! For installation, it is additionally necessary to purchase an extension cord, as no fasteners are provided in the standard variation. only holes with a diameter of up to 65 cm.
Universal wheels Kum 540 with a long hub
KUM 540 is often used for tilling, but the hub is already installed. they are connected directly to the gearbox shaft.
An additional feature is the width of the wheel, which can be up to 68 cm.
- number of hoops. 2 pcs.;
- Wheel diameter on spikes. 540 mm, on the hoop. 460 mm. The cleat width is 90 mm;
- hub diameter. 30 mm.
Fitted on the gearbox shaft. The total weight does not exceed 13.5 kg.
H tines for ploughing
Large diameter and width stand out from the features. To be used when it is necessary to work on the virgin soil or fields after winter absence, when the surface is still hard and requires preparation.
To ensure the best passability of your equipment Installation is possible on the shaft of the Neva power tiller or on extensions, depending on the situation.
In the case of direct mounting, the track width is 40 cm, when using an extension, it ranges from 65 to 70 cm.
Mini H tines for ploughing
The grousers for Neva cultivators are similar to the KUM range.
Optimal for plowing the ground.
H tilling point with a long hub
Complete identity with the model range reviewed. The only difference is the already built in sleeve.
This model has a fixed track size of 65 cm.
Mini H grousers for ploughing
Today are considered one of the lightweight models of the MINI H for plowing. During plowing, the ground is already prepared and not hard, because of which there is no need for a solid type.
The diameter on the hoop is set at 28 cm, and the width for perching is 9 cm.
They are designed for both summer and winter operation.
How to make a single-axle tractor with your own hands
All dacha owners know that it is very difficult to cultivate large areas set aside for the garden, using only improvised tools. But unfortunately not everyone has the opportunity to buy a single-axle tractor, because of its high cost. Some craftsmen master motorblades with their own hands, which is quite inexpensive.
The indisputable advantage of homemade power tillers is their cost: the cost of materials is practically absent. Most consumables can be found at the farm, and missing elements can be bought from neighbors at low cost. single-axle tractor can be assembled from improvised materials, most often using parts of old chainsaws, motorcycles or mopeds, and other agricultural machinery. If you compare, in terms of reliability and functionality, such devices are no worse than the factory-made power tillers, but in financial terms they are often much more profitable.
Drawing with instructions for making wheels for a single axle tractor
Drawing of self-made wheels for a cultivator
It is possible to make coupled wheels with a weighting agent inserted between them.
Homemade twin wheels on motor blocks can be made in any number of variations: fitting diameters, weight, width, height of profile. all depends on the needs and capabilities of the owner of the unit.
Wheel for a power tiller. chambers for large support and traction wheels, pressure in Zhigul tires, the characteristic of the wheels from “VAZ 2121” and “Moskvich
In most cases, before buying a power tiller, people pay special attention to the practical characteristics of the device, not interested in the quality and features of the wheels. Such an approach can hardly be called smart, because the quality and duration of the equipment itself depends on these parts.
As the specified unit is a multifunctional device, the wheels on a single-axle tractor are offered different:
To understand the specifics of each type, you should consider their features in more detail.
These options are excellent for frequent plowing and digging up root crops. An important point: the width of the wheels in any case should not be less than 20 cm and the diameter. 40 cm. The aggressive tread pattern is a big plus.
Pneumatic wheels make the machine extremely stable, but need to be replaced if damaged. Often they are sold as wheels for power tillers Neva.
These products have another name: “herringbone”, and all thanks to their versatility and interesting tires. Increased grip width allows them to perform the task of both ground wheels and classic transport wheels.
over, traction variants are suitable for carts and snow blowers, as well as help to cope with off-road. Durable, top quality rubber offers durability and a long service life.
On stony ground, where many wheels deteriorate very quickly, one-piece wheels are ideal. Although they weigh a little more than the wheels above, they do not drift.
These products have the most powerful tires for the power tiller, so for diesel types, transformed into mini-tractors, they are bought. For MTZ motor blocks the solid cast wheels are considered to be the ideal variant.
Metal wheels with cleats
These wheels have a certain weighting and are therefore distinguished by their extra power. Teeth made of steel “push” the machine forward and do not allow it to boot even in the most clay soil.
Particular attention should be paid to the supporting front wheel, which has a considerable load. They optimize tillage and make the tiller more durable.
Trailer wheels have a similar classification and are chosen according to the same principles. Do not forget that in the process of transporting heavy loads, the low pressure is on the wheels of the motoblock itself, and the high pressure is on the wheels of the cart (trailer). So in this case you need to choose the most durable variants.
How to make wheels for a power tiller with your own hands?
It should be understood that it is impossible to make wheels from scratch with your own hands. It is necessary to find a basis and only after that you can proceed to the formation of improved and useful devices.
As this very base you should use the wheels from a motorcycle or car. It is possible to create a homemade version only with the load hook, because if wheel weights are not used that often, it makes no sense to buy new, expensive products. On our website you can find a specialized article, where all the peculiarities of the creation of the grousers with their own hands are considered in detail.
To expand the wheelbase it is recommended to use extensions for the wheels of power tillers, because it is necessary to properly adapt the device to the individual needs of the farmer. over, to expand the capabilities it is possible to create iron twin wheels, which have a cavity inside for placing some kind of weighting agent.
Yes, these objects are unlikely to be used for the trailer of the motorcycle block, but they will be very useful for the unit, because they can be created in the case where a person does not have the wheels of a motorcycle, but available from the UAZ or “Moskvich”.
- reduced tugging, and, as a result, increased productivity levels;
- the ability to quickly remove the wheels of the outer plan;
- ease of creation at home;
- maximum contact with the surface.
Dual wheels are gradually becoming more and more popular, because you can spend a little time to create them yourself.
How to make twin wheels by yourself?
Of particular interest to farmers has gained a simple and even a little crude, but effective method:
- It is then advisable to cut small treads on them;
- The next step is that people buy a strip of steel 5x50mm, weld squares with a side of 250mm and insert them into the rim;
To get such useful attachments is not difficult, the main thing is to determine exactly what options are needed and pick up all the necessary “ingredients”.
Attachments for motor vehicles
The basic configuration of the motoblock or cultivator includes a limited set of equipment. Additional attachments expand the functionality of the machinery for agricultural work. The PTO on a single axle tractor is designed for snow clearing, haymaking, tillage, etc.д.
PTO (power take-off shaft): where it is used
The engine torque is not only transmitted to the wheel axle, but also to the rotation of the tiller and other attachments of all kinds. In the way of this process in high-quality and expensive machines, a special PTO mechanism is installed. Such a shaft is integrated:
- Before the clutch. PTO shaft rotates no matter whether single axle tractor is standing or driving. Very handy, because some agricultural tasks can be carried out from a standing position.
- After the clutch. In this case, it only works when the machine is moving.
PTO provides the unique ability to hitch a wide range of implements. After all, there are attachments that rotate not passively (like a mill), but actively. These are rotary brooms, seeders, mowers, sprinklers, aerators, etc. All of them have an active drive, which requires more power, and for this purpose, a PTO is installed. A functional and heavy machine often has several PTOs built in and they determine the desired speed of the attachment.
